Default New Intel Benches

http://www23.tomshardware.com/cpu_20...=877&chart=425

the benches of all the new 1333mhz Bus CPU's with every in between

funny thing though about that is i looked my CPU's benches at stock. not the best. but knowing from other benches my cpu(with its OC) is on PAR(no joke) with an E6600 . in that bench you can clearly see the difference in the frames. also like those benchmakrs i have the same RAM only difference will be is a 8800GTS 320MB instead of an 8800GTX which isnt that much at lower resoultions.


to me this shows that C2D's are overhyped. people think that a stock E6600 beats any AMD cpu. if only they made higher speed Brisbanes. there is a 300mhz speed difference seeing i have my X2 running at 2.7 and its on par with an E6600 while with the windsor core it takes 3.0 to be on par with it

Yeah, but when you overclock the Core 2 Duos, they blow everything else out of the water

very true but most people dont OC.

what ive wanted to find an article on is power consumtion. since most people leave there PC's on 24-7 how much does it cost on average to run a C2D compared to X2. AMD says there much more power eficent which from the rated watts they. ive always wanted to know the cost to run a pc

isnt the C2D like 125 watts

Nope, the maximum power draw of most of the Core 2 Duos is 65 watts. Very power efficient, even more so than the Athlon 64s.

to run a computer consuming 500 watts an hour for a year at the average cost of electricity in the USA(10.65 cents per killowatt hour) it only costs 20$. not as much as most companys say

Core 2 Duo's still have the best performance per watt ratio.

Core 2 Duos are not overhyped. You overclocked your processor. And I'll overclock mine. Let's see who wins
